How I love to bake pies... Last Monday I turned 23 and I spent my weekend baking pies. Seriously a great pass time (except when one pie fails at the first two attempts).
Its funny how you evolve over the years, when I was young all I cared about was what birthday presents I would get and how many people would visit my Birthday. Now as I am a grown up (sort of) I care about how my pies look and taste, what I dress for the occasion (I had to work but instead of the usual black I wore Pink), and how my invitation to the afterwork / bday drinks look like.
I spent the whole Saturday contemplating over cookbooks deciding what flavors my pies would be and the rest of my day at the hairdresser for the special B'day coupe ;). When I got home in the afternoon there was a huge flower arrangement was awaiting me from a special someone. In the end my pies ended up in chocolate flavor and pomegranate/vanilla and even though I had to work my birthday was a blast!
I found the recipes in the cookbook by Gartine (http://www.bol.com/nl/p/zoete-hartige-heerlijkheden/1001004007514734/?featuredProduct) a cookbook with seasonal recipes, sweet delicacies and salty treats!
